Galvanic facials use a direct galvanic electrical current to introduce water-soluble substances through the skin's surface in an effort to improve ingredient absorption and moisture retention. Galvanic facial treatments are best offered for spa–goers with dry, dehydrated skin, though it also aids in treating those with oily complexion due to its effective removal of congestion.

Why get a galvanic facial?
Spa-goers can bring new life to their skin with a galvanic facial. This particular type of facials isappropriate for most skin types, whether oily, normal, or dry. It boosts the effectiveness of any skin treatment, and because water-soluble substances are presented to the skin, it increases the skin’s ability to absorb, allowing the active ingredients of the facial as well as skin products to penetrate deeper. If you have a dry complexion, or if your skin is in desperate need of hydration, a galvanic facial treatment is a good choice because it increases moisture retention. Also, if you have problem skin, this treatment is beneficial because it’s targeted at eliminating clogged pores and reducing oils that can lead to acne.

The benefits to receiving a galvanic facial are numerous. Along with hydrating the skin, this facial is said to counteract complexion dullness brought on by ageing or stress, eliminate sebaceous blockage and congestion (major causes of blemishes), increases circulation, and create a healthier glow. Galvanic facials are also a good anti-aging treatment for those who want a fresher look because they are non-invasive and aim at tightening and firming the skin and softening lines and wrinkles, resulting n a plumper, smoother look.

Good to know
Having a galvanic facial is a painless procedure, though some people say they experience a slight tingling sensation. Because there is no downtime necessary, spa-goers may opt for this facial treatment during their lunch hour. Galvanic facials are not for everybody, including those with heart conditions, pace makers, braces, and those who have undergone major metal dental work. 

Galvanic treatments are not just categorized as a facial service. They can also be used for the entire body, mainly the hips, arms, thighs, and stomach, to target cellulite reduction, improve firmness, and increase circulation.
